Bricks in word and pictures

The Fritz Höger Award for Brick Architecture aims to strengthen the public awareness of the design possibilities with the building material brick. Therefore the process and progress of each competition is accompanied by press releases. The submissions get then published by us and the selected media partner. Even objects that are not ultimately nominated for the Fritz Höger Award for Brick Architecture reach a broad public audience. In addition to the press releases we provide press photos, which you can use following the terms of use.

On 18th January 2021 the Building with Bricks Initiative announced the winners of the Fritz Höger Award for Brick Architecture via its website. This year not only bronze awards were a novelty: For the first time two projects were awarded the Grand Prix. Both the Musée Cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne by Barozzi / Veiga and the Nakasone House detached property in Mexico City by the architect Escobedo Soliz completely convinced the judges and were accordingly honoured with the highest award.
